Abubakar and other officers of Nigerian Army as well as that of other sister security agencies. The Commander showed Adefisoye round the camp and explained to him the strategic security importance of the camp.

“I am most impressed with the functional facilities that are available in the Super Camp, particularly the helipad. The Brigade Commander also deserves commendation for humanitarian services being rendered by the military to residents of the host communities. Provision of potable water, distribution of sports wears and computers to students in the Southern Senatorial District of Ondo state by the military are undoubtedly deserving of commendation”.
